About the Book

‘A fearless investigative journalist and author.’
PATTI SMITH


'Determined, tenacious, intelligent, and honest in her approach.’
ANNA BURNS

‘A fierce light, a formidable voice.’
SINÉAD GLEESON

A memorial collection of writings by the murdered young journalist Lyra McKee – from viral articles to unpublished material – that celebrates her life, work and creative legacy: one that will live on.

When Northern Irish writer Lyra McKee was murdered in Derry in April 2019, aged just twenty-nine, she was survived by writings that had been read and loved by thousands worldwide. Compiled by those who knew her best, Lost, Found, Remembered weaves together the words that defined her reputation as one of the most deeply empathetic, politically urgent journalists of her generation.

Showcasing the range of her voice by bringing together unpublished material alongside both her celebrated and lesser-known pieces, it reveals the sheer scope of McKee’s intellectual and radically humane engagement with the world – and lets her spirit live on in her own words.

  • Lyra McKee

    Lyra McKee was born in 1990 in Belfast. She won Sky News’ Young Journalists Award in 2006 and became an investigative reporter, writing for numerous newspapers, magazines and websites. She was featured as one of Forbes’ 30 under 30 and a rising literary star by the Irish Times. Lyra McKee was fatally shot during rioting in Derry on the 18th April 2019. At the time of her death, she was working on a piece of investigative journalism entitled The Lost Boys which is not yet ready for publication, but remains under review with Faber and those closest to her.

“‘A fearless investigative journalist and author. Beloved and trusted champion of the lost, marginalised and those, like herself, who have suffered growing up in a discriminatory environment . . . a brilliant flame extinguished.’ ”
- Patti Smith
“‘[Lyra was a] powerhouse, determined, tenacious, intelligent, and honest in her approach . . . and since her death she has pulled off more than she could ever have expected by bringing all communities together.’ ”
- Anna Burns
